Elementary schools host Heidner plant sales

Laurel Elementary Schools are preparing for the annual Heidner Plant Sale, May 11-12. The annual sale raises funds to purchase technology equipment for the grade schools. On Thursday, May 11, the sale will be at Graff and West schools from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. On Friday, May 12, the sale will be at South Elementary School from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The plants were raised with care by residents of the Special K Ranch. A four-pack of annuals or vegetables can be purchased for $2.50. Larger 4.5 inch annuals are on sale for $5. Hanging baskets can be purchased for $30 and 5.5 inch perrinials for $12.
Now in its 24th year, the annual sale began in 1993 to honor Gary Heidner, a fourth-grade teacher at Graff who died of cancer the year before. He was the first teacher at the school to bring a computer to class for his students to use. He saw the need for students to become familiar with computers and opted to bring his own for student use. The proceeds from the sales were initially placed in a scholarship for fourth-grade students to attend computer camp. Later, the PTA offered classes for all fourth-grade students to learn about computers. Today, the money raised will help all the grade schools in Laurel meet their technology needs.
